~ The New TUJ Campus ~
Showa Women’s University (SWU) and Temple University, Japan Campus (TUJ) have agreed to
share a campus at SWU’s location in Setagaya-ku, Tokyo. TUJ has moved its entire
operation to a brand new six-story building on SWU’s campus. The two universities will share
some existing facilities at SWU including sport fields and gyms, auditoriums, and cafeteria.
TUJ maintains the high academic standards and requirements of Temple University in Philadelphia. A degree earned at TUJ is exactly the same as one from Temple University, so you can receive a prestigious American bachelor's degree while living in Japan.
TUJ operates on a trimester system that allows flexibility in enrollment scheduling.
About half of TUJ's students are non-Japanese, and they bring diverse cultural perspectives to TUJ's campus life and classroom discussions. Attracted by TUJ's cosmopolitan location, students from the United States, Canada, and all parts of Asia, Russia, the Middle East, and Europe develop the intercultural communication skills that are essential for global success in any career.
With 10 majors, TUJ also offers more academic options than any other university with an English-based curriculum in Japan. An average class size of 21 means that TUJ instructors can provide a high level of personal attention and support to each student.

Temple University's main campus
International Business Studies was developed in response to the contemporary global need for personnel with the knowledge and skills to work in the international arena. The curriculum encompasses a general knowledge of cultures, economies and societies, the business knowledge required to succeed in a variety of careers, and the language abilities to work across borders. The program aims to equip graduates with the skills for effective and efficient operations in a multilingual and multicultural business environment.
International Affairs is an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary subject which covers political science, geography, economics and history. It explores international cooperation and conflict, poverty and development, the nature and causes of war, nationalism and social change, and other issues. Focusing especially upon Japan and its place in Asia and the world, it requires students to study regions besides East Asia and the United States. Students must undertake an internship and study an East Asian language.
Embracing a variety of disciplines from Temple's highly ranked Klein College of Media and Communication, the Communication Studies major covers media studies and production, film and media arts, journalism, speech, and theater. To develop as professionals familiar with both the practice and theory of communications, students may undertake an optional internship.
Asian Studies features an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the Asia-Pacific region’s fast-growing economies, rapid social change, environmental challenges, and rich cultural traditions. Students may specialize in international relations, religion, art history, economics or history. Asian Studies majors must study an East Asian language.
True to the curriculum of Temple’s renowned Tyler School of Art and Architecture, the Art major focuses on visual art practice within a liberal arts context. Courses include design, drawing, painting, three-dimensional design, printmaking, digital photography, digital imaging, Internet imaging, moving images, motion graphics, media arts and art history. The faculty teaches studio art from the viewpoint of its connection to such disciplines as psychology, literature, philosophy, mathematics, biology and physics.
TUJ’s Japanese Language major is a unique program designed to offer a comprehensive Japanese language curriculum in a JSL (Japanese as a Second Language) setting. It aims to achieve advanced and well-balanced proficiency in Japanese so that students will be well-equipped with linguistic skills and fully prepared to engage with the wider scholarship of Japanese studies. It is most suitable as part of a double major to complement one of TUJ’s well-established interdisciplinary studies such as Asian Studies, International Affairs, Communication Studies, International Business Studies, and so forth.
Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary, Economics provides fundamental tools of analysis for all social science subjects, adding depth and complexity to the study of political science, geography and urban studies, history, and law. Courses address such issues as economic development, creation of wealth, fundamentals of economic policies, and financial theory and principles. The senior seminar pays special attention to Japan’s place in the Asian and global economies.
Psychological Studies provides a broad understanding of psychology as the science of human behavior and of its underlying mental processes, while uniquely focusing on cross-cultural and Asian issues. Foundation courses such as developmental, clinical, social, cognitive, and organizational psychology develop students’ skills in critical thinking, research methodology, and research writing, and broaden their knowledge and deepen their understanding of pertinent cross-cultural and Asian issues. Students must participate in either an internship or a research project, both of which culminate in a final paper.
Political Science intersects with almost all the humanities. It analyzes and systematizes political systems, political theory, and international relations. Students sound out the dimensions of these three sectors in basic courses before they specialize. They are strongly recommended to study a foreign language.
General Studies enables students, in consultation with the Academic Advising Center, to design an interdisciplinary major in the humanities (critical languages, English, philosophy and religion) or the social sciences (American studies, Asian studies, economics, history, political science and psychology). Students may create an area of study that embraces an intellectual theme, such as environmental and population control, human rights, war and peace, or moral and ethical responsibilities.
